Sure, thats the way it was in 2.4, but seems under 2.6 I rapidly lose
battery power, and once it hits 45% it suddenly jumps to 0% and shuts me
down.  I only get an hour or so from a full charge, unlike the 3 hours I
got under 2.4

Well, here's the thing.  ibooks have an extra button that powerbooks
don't (or vice versa), the eject button.  Since keyboards are different,
a default won't work very well.  We need to expose a UI to select which
button much like Gnomes keyboard shortcut selector (press button for
this function, instead of trying to figure out what keycode a button

Speaking of Gnome shortcuts, all of a sudden the apple key can't be used
as a meta-mod, so it can't be used in combinations such as <apple>-left
and <apple>-right or other things such as that.  I think this isn't just
a ppc thing because the windows key in x86 can't be used in the same
manner.  This is a change from FC2 and it annoys the crap out of me as I
have to re-learn a lot of keyboard shortcuts I had set up.  Fixing this
on PPC would have the echo effect of fixing it on x86 and that's not bad

Even if we don't integrate it, having a how-to posted somewhere
convenient would be nice.

Yes, totally an Extras/ppc thing.
